What Does Ultrasound Of Throat Show
Depends on where: From the point of view of anatomy where exactly it is will determine what it may be. Certainly a large lymph node may be a good thought. So it depends on what the doctor reading the study says compared to the throat. Best talk to you doctor. Also a CT may be needed to really see what is going on. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
I want to know what a lump is on my throat is but it doesn't show up on ultrasound. What kinds of lumps cannot be seen on ultrasound imaging?
Globus: Globus hystericus, or globus pharyngitis, is a sensation of a lump in the throat, with no pathology. If there is no pain, and swallowing is normal, then it's probably globus. If you have a palpable neck lump, or pain, or abnomal swallowing, then there is something wrong and you should see an ENT doctor. ...Read more
I have a hard fixed nodule directly on my right clavicle near throat. X ray and blood work are clear however ultrasound shows solid mass. No pain.
Have it worked up: Lumps in the neck can be caused by a number of things. They range from benign (like lymph nodes responding to an infection, cysts, or non-cancerous tumors) to serious conditions like cancer. If it is suspicious, then a fine needle aspiration (needle biopsy) would be the next step. ...Read more
Diagnosed with me 18 months ago. Clear blood tests. Ultrasound of neck shows several lymph nodes but all under 1cm. Is this ok or could it be lymphoma?
< 1 cm SA = good: Lymph nodes with short axis measurements of less than 1 cm are not, technically, considered adenopathy, although widespread early metastatic disease cannot be excluded (would require a pet scan). The lack of anything else worrisome per history is reassuring. I don't know what "me" is, but ultrasound surveillance of the neck nodes in 4-6 months to ensure stability would be helpful. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows small reactive lymph node in neck which has been there 15 weeks+ bloods are normal and I have been refered to ENT. Worry?
Don't worry too much: There is a network of lymph nodes in the head/ neck region. When you have a cold or upper respiratory infection, sometimes they become more prominent. They usually go back to normal in time. Sometimes they don't. If they stay enlarged, then it's worth taking a closer look by having one removed and tested. Most times they are just chronic inflammation, but it can be infection or rarely cancer. ...Read more

Had my 36 week ultrasound and it shows babys cord wrapped around neck with a. 67 resistence index also a grade 3 placenta. How dangerous is this?
Snapshot in time: This just means you need to be in close contact. If babies been growing nl this should be ok. I've had healthy infants with up to 5 neck wraps or 2 true knots. They are worrisome and suggest the child may not do well in labor with the increased stress.A c-section delivery is more likely and an early trip to the l&d area anytime you think you are having contractions is worth considering. ...Read more
I did a neck ultrasound and on the report is show: "largest lymph node 1.4 cm", impression: "lymph nodes normal size". How can it be normal size?
The size: Of the lymph node is not the only factor in deciding whether a lymph node is abnormal. The shape of the lymph node, the vascularity, and the cortex thickness are all important in helping to determine whether it is abnormal. That said, a 1.4cm (long axis diameter) neck lymph node would be considered within normal range assuming the other features are also normal. ...Read more
Normal lymph nodes: Have a kidney bean appearance with fat in the central part of the node. This configuration usually persists when nodes are enlarged by a benign inflammatory response. Nodes involved with cancer cells often loose the central fat, enlarge asymmetrically, have an irregular outer surface, and show increased blood flow in the outer surface of the node. ...Read more

Before or after?: If after then no good reason for fullness. If before the most common cause for globus sensation usually muscular tightness in upper sphincter between throat and esophagus often from reflux. Sometimes from stress, thyroiditis, irritation of nerves in throat. Consider ENT eval with barium swallow and exam of throat and larynx. ...Read more
Possibly: An ultrasound only tells you that there is something there. Throat cancer is often easily seen by an ENT exam. However, an ultrasound can tell if a lymph node has an abnormal architecture possibly because it is infiltrated by tumor. Thyroid nodules that are hypervascular, hypoechioc, or contain calcifications on ultrasound are more likely to be malignant. For neck or thyroid mass see ent. ...Read more

Ultrasound report:heterogeneous gland with no focal abnormalities what does this mean? Dr. felt glad was swollen & have feeling of marble in throat,
Possible adenomyosis: Not sure what the marble in the throat means. Probably unrelated. The description of the ultrasounds sounds like a condition called adenomyosis, which is a fancy way of saying some of the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is abnormally located in the uterine muscle. It is often associated with uterine enlargement. The is can be painful. An MRI can clearly diagnose it. ...Read more
